Release Notes

Simple MVVM Toolkit v1.1.0.0

This release contains a lot of new features, including an event aggregator / mediator called the MessageBus, which enables two-way communication between view-models in a loosely coupled fashion. There is also support for dependency injection with MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework) and a new Visual Studio item template for a view-model locator that uses MEF to inject the service agent (real or mock). Included in this release are three new sample applications, demonstrating messaging, navigation and dependency injection for unit testing. There are new code snippets for commands, and even an xml code snippet for inserting Blend triggers in XAML.

I updated the toolkit documentation to include coverage of these features.

New Features:

MessageBus for two-way communication among view-models
